In his show, Modi will visit the Jim Corbett National Park with Grylls. This is dedicated to create awareness around the animal conservation and environment protection.

“For years, I have lived among nature, in the mountains and the forests. These years have a lasting impact on my life. So when I was asked about a special programme focusing on life beyond politics and that too in the midst of nature I was very excited to take part in it,” Modi said.

In 2016, Bear Grylls took Obama into the Alaskan Wilderness — America’s largest natural landscapes — to witness the impact of global warming and climate change in the United States. “It is heartening to see powerful men protecting the environment,” Grylls told ANI recently, looking back at the times with Obama.

During his time at Alaska, Obama tasted a salmon fish along with making tea from glacier water. However, he kneeled down when it came to drinking his own urine in the cold wilderness. “I suppose, in extremis, it’s something that I would do – if the alternative was death. It’s not something I’d make a habit of. And I probably wouldn’t do it just for a TV show,” Obama had said.

Putin, who worked as an intelligence agent for nearly 16 years, has had an undeniable passion for adventure. Vladimir Putin had been the host of TV series titled "Russia, Kremlin, Putin." And, as expected, the much-feared leader had chased away bears in the wild.

"Although if a bear sees Putin – they aren’t idiots – they will behave themselves,” ET reported citing Putin’s holiday in a remote part of Siberia.
